Treze Tílias

Treze Tílias is a typically Austrian city in the middle of Santa Catarina. Its natural and climatic similarities to the Tyrol region were deciding factors when it was founded in 1933. Today, in addition to the view, the entire city is reminiscent of Austria: the two-story white houses with wooden details on the windows and window boxes, the cuisine, traditions, festivals and typical dances, as well as the beautiful and well cared for parks. There is also an emphasis on the colonial products, Austrian handicrafts and the town’s main tourist event: Tirolerfest.
